Low-grade gliomas (LGGs) are slow-growing and diffusely infiltrating tumours constituting 25–30 % of adult gliomas. Rarely, these tumours may arise in the cerebral midline, including the thalamus, hypothalamus, tectum and brainstem. Here we present a contemporary experience with midline LGGs. Midline LGGs were identified from a retrospective database of(More)
BACKGROUND World Health Organization grade II astrocytomas (AII) are the commonest low-grade glioma subset, but their prognostic factors are subject to debate. This institutional study aimed to identify prognostic factors in lobar AII. METHODS Retrospective review of newly diagnosed, lobar AII between 2006 and 2012. Patient demographics, imaging, and(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding the factors that drive recurrence and radiosensitivity in brain metastases would improve prediction of outcomes, treatment planning and development of therapeutics. We investigated the expression of known metastasis-inducing proteins in human brain metastases. METHODS Immunohistochemistry on metastases removed at neurosurgery from(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial granulomatous masses presenting as space occupying lesions, although rare, have been described in the literature. Causes include infections, systemic granulomatous disorders, and iatrogenic from previous surgery. We present a case demonstrating that spontaneous intracranial granuloma can exist, often mimicking a brain tumor. CASE(More)
